GROUNDBREAKING SUCCESS

On November 6, 2019, Paul’s Place broke ground on Groundwork Kitchen, the future home of our culinary arts training program and restaurant, located at 925 Washington Boulevard just around the corner from our main facility and offices. Executive Director Bill McLennan and Board Chair Susan Owens welcomed community and city leaders, partners, volunteers, staff and donors to partake in the occasion, which included a ceremonial shoveling of dirt. The event officially marked the beginning of construction on the $10 million project – a 15,000-square-foot building that will house a 150-seat restaurant and training facilities where classes of up to 15 persons aged “18 to 80” will learn front-of-house and back-of-house skills. Expected completion of Groundwork Kitchen is fall 2020.
